I remember being so excited while listening to Mary and George tell me their love story over coffee at Le Pain Quotidien. Finally, another girl who said “I love you” first! We both told our fellas that we loved them around the one-year mark in our relationships! I felt like I was meeting my long-lost soul sister! :)
Mary and George had one goal for their wedding: it needed to be easy for guests so they could have fun and enjoy the day! One of the ways they made things easy was to keep all the wedding events in one location. The getting ready time, ceremony, and reception were all held at the Three Village Inn in Stony Brook, NY.
Obsessed with these rings!
Mary gave each of her girls an etched glass to remember the day!
Emotion filled the room…
Mary, are you for real?! You are way tooooo gorgeous!
Thanks to the lovely Tina Elizabeth for assisting me all day long and for spending the morning with George! Love these two images!
It had been raining all morning and the forecast predicted that it would keep raining all day and night. Knowing the forecast, I asked some prayer warrior friends of mine to pray that the sun would come out even if just for 10 minutes during our portrait time with the couple! Well, God is good and we had sunshine for the entire First Look and portrait time!! :)
Obsessed with these florals – such great colors! Can you believe this is a Whole Foods bouquet?! They have an entire department for weddings and events!
Succulents are pretty much my new favorite thing, so I love that Mary and George gave them as wedding favors!
Such a cute photo “booth” idea!
This little boy was WORKING IT for my camera!
I guess we should have been praying against rain during the ceremony too, but Mary and George know how to enjoy any situation! :)
Thankfully the Three Village Inn had this pretty white wall lying around so we could still capture all the family and wedding party photos. Rain, you lose.
Love this super sweet moment between Mary’s mom and George’s mom…
When time allows for it during the wedding day, I try to surprise all of my couples with a same-day slideshow of some of their wedding highlights! They loooove it! Then, I put the slideshow by the bar or cake table so guests can see it too! :)
It’s not a good night if people don’t end up rolling around on the floor!
